Who cares though I suppose. It's not something I can see myself purchasing but anything to keep Monkey Island in the gaming world is good enough for me.
I already bought both on the Xbox and Steam. Do I get a free download of the featurette and concept art or whatever they're tarting this version up with?
Honestly this annoys me quite a lot. The commentaries they added to MI2 were a great idea but I got the impression they recorded a heck of a lot more than they included, and I wondered why they'd held it back.
The only way Lucasarts are getting any money out of me for this (and a lot of people, I'd imagine) is if they do some sort of "upgrade" deal on any platform, for people who've already paid at least once (presumably twice if you include the original time that they are feeling the nostalgia for) for the games...
Otherwise I'm watching it on Steam and XBLA and will wait for it to be reduced to a silly price.
Double Dipping is all very well with DVDs and physical media, but when you've bought something vitually and all they're adding is what amounts to bonus disc style extras, its not like anyone can trade in their virtual copies to buy this...
